Practical and original hair accessories
In the wardrobe of modern fashionistas, trendy hair decorations are increasingly appearing - rubber bands. What is their secret, why are they so desirable for girls? This accessory not only helps to complete the image or decorate the hairstyle. The elastic bezel is a very practical thing, because it allows you to quickly and reliably put your hair in the original hairstyle.
How to make an elastic band yourself?
If the girl has the most elementary skills of sewing, she can easily make such an ornament from those materials that can be found in the house. In this case, the product will not be worse than that of some famous designer.
First try a simple rubber band. After you master the technique, you can begin to fantasize and create more complex models. Remember, the main rule of elastic hair ornament: the bezel must be made extremely neatly, especially the place of joining the rim with the elastic band.
Therefore, the main attention should be directed not to the front side of the hoop, but to the rear, the junction should look very beautiful (then no one will guess that you have sewn such a beautiful decoration yourself).
The photos show well the production sequence:
- Prepare the materials. It will take: an elastic band of dense structure; two small solid (without seam) gum, used for hair. Prepare the glue to glue the edge of the elastic band (to prevent the edge from shedding); scissors; Needle and strong thread (nylon, preferably). You may need to use pliers to pull the needle through several layers of elastic material.
- Grab the edge of a small rubber band with an elastic band, the edge of which is already dried after gluing. Wrap the edge as shown in the photo (twice).
- Carefully start to sew the elastic band, trying to hide the seam, making it invisible. The needle is guided through the inner cavity of the tucked material. Secure the thread securely and put the end inside the seam.
- Connect one rubber band to the other, as shown in the photo.
- Now try on the bezel and determine the length of the elastic band in place. Add the allowance to the seam and cut. Repeat all operations with the other end of the tape (do not forget to paste it). To make this jewelry well worn, it is important to achieve the exact size. Otherwise, the rubber bands will slip during socks.
Different variants of rubber rims
- The rim itself is made of inelastic material, and the ability to stretch it gives a piece of rubber that can be hidden under the hair.
- The rim is completely made of rubber band and is decorated with inelastic elements.
The front part of the rim can be of all kinds. Look for some original things in your house among old things or at sales: beads, bugles, stylish buckles, chains, pieces of bright braid, rhinestones, artificial flowers, elastic lace, stretch fabrics, feathers and brooches, buttons and rivets. All this variety of jewelry can be used both individually and in combination. You can give one more example: the rubber bands can be made from knitted or stretch fabrics (for this old, already unnecessary things are good). A strip of knitted fabric must be joined in a ring and, twisting twice, make a soft elastic bezel "a la turban".
